Just wondering how it went for you. We are booked in for one but I am concerned about how long we will have to fast for and how she will cope with sitting still while they do it. She 16 months old and very strong minded.

We just had one done on Tuesday. It went fine. Just bring the bottle you use. I let her eat her last meal before bed and then I didn't let her eat until it was done but apparently you are able to feed them before hand, but make sure it's long enough before so they'll be interested in taking another bottle. Ours only lasted a few minutes. My kid didn't sit still and it was fine. We passed ours and now we're headed to a pulmonologist.
